Who remembers Storefront Theatre?

José does!

Our fearless leader and founder will be speaking this weekend as part of a panel discussion on the history of theater in Portland. The Oregon Historical Society will be presenting, as part of their Second Sunday series, “Glimpses of Portland Theater History.”

The discussion will be moderated by the influential arts critic Bob Hicks (formerly of The Oregonian and current Performance and Visual Arts writer for Oregon Artswatch), and the panel will include Don Horn (Executive Director and founder of triangle productions) and
Julianne R. Johnson-Weiss (actor with over thirty years’ experience
performing throughout Oregon and Washington). The talk is tied to the upcoming show by triangle productions, “Storefront Actors’ Review”, which brings back some of the original and outrageous work of the legendary Storefront Theatre, a irreverent and daring company that led the way in visually striking and boundary-stretching creativity in Portland throughout the 70’s and 80’s.
